Eat It Slow
Tune: "Play It Slow," Echo's Children
Words: Batya Wittenberg, Josh Kronengold
We are served a chocolate cake and while I'm savoring a mouthful,
Eat it slow, eat it slow, it's so dark and rich and tender,
It will give you indigestion -- eat it slow, you know
It's got nuts that you could choke on, it will spoil your taste for dinner
And I know I'll get to have some if you'll only eat it slow
You have gulped your first taste down, and then your smile goes very wide.
I have closed my eyes in bliss, but when I open them I'm doubtful,
For your smile hasn't changed, but now you've half the cake inside.
So I scrape the melted frosting up and glare across the table --
Now I know you've got a sweet tooth and the fastest spoon in town
But I much prefer to savor food as long as I am able
When I take that big a serving, I can never get it down!
